Clip: 11/01/2018 | 8m 44s

In Spain, a constitutional debate has arisen over the body of former dictator Francisco Franco. The new left-wing government wants to relocate Franco's remains, which lie in the Valley of the Fallen, a Spanish civil war monument near Madrid. But the Benedictine monks overseeing the fascist dictator’s mausoleum say only the king can decide the fate of Franco’s corpse. Malcolm Brabant has the story.
